Hope you can get it working before winter sets in, good thing we have common units and parts are easy to come by.
It's working tonight We were at the factory Wed, Thur, Fri and got the big stuff fixed, but they ran out of time on Fri, so we decided to tour Michigan for a few days and then head back down an finish up some loose ends before continuing our travels. Are you headed back to CA after factory?

Yes it is a beautiful view and area! The bridge is all lit up and it's a clear view right now. It is a little chilly, especially with the wind coming off the lake. Are you on the west side of the state?

Yes. We are off US 131 at exit 59. Between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo. The park is called Hidden Ridge. We have a seasonally lot. We will be hear until the 15th and then head for Florida.

Then take a look at this one. It is the one I use.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o01_s00

A lot smaller and I like the way the air circulates. Most heaters blow straight out and then the heat rises to the ceiling. Then you need a ceiling fan to get the heat down where you are at. This blows straight out across the room. It is small enough to sit on the kitchen counter, which is where I sit it.

Wow, just looked at the website and location...that is a beautiful place! You stay there all summer? Are there many mosquitos when it's warm?
We are back in Elkhart today, hopefully they can finish the remaining issues between today and tomorrow, so we can be on our way.

This year the Mosquito's have had a red cross blood mobile hooked to their backs. Extremely aggressive little buggers. It was a very wet spring and they had a good start. We really like it here and they take very good care of the park. We stay here most of the summer but we full-time so we take frequent trips just like going on vacation.
Hope they get you all fixed up. Warren is a great guy as is Chris. I'm sure you will be happy and on your way soon. Tell Randy I said hello.
